When you’ve been accused of a crime in San Diego, it’s important to weigh all your options carefully. Now is the time to make the smartest decisions to best protect your rights and stay out of jail.

Most people we speak with know right away that they need help from a private defense attorney, but some do consider the option of not hiring an attorney to protect them. When you hire a private criminal defense attorney, there are several distinct factors to consider:

Our attorneys take on a limited case volume, specifically, so we can provide the best possible service and results. Our #1 goal is to get your charges reduced and dropped, keep you out of jail, and protect what’s important to you.

The results of your or your loved ones’ case is directly intertwined with the reputation of not only the attorney but the entire law firm. This creates a significant amount of incentive for Mr. Friis to strive for the best possible outcome, which we feel shows in our case results and victories in San Diego.

Superior Law Center has won over 2000 cases in San Diego, and as a result, we have experience and relationships with the judges that can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case.

At Superior Law Center, we make ourselves personally available to our clients at all hours of the day.

If you believe you are guilty and you have no options, a skilled San Diego defense attorney can often get penalties & fines significantly reduced. We also have a history of getting costly fines removed substituted for community service, which can be a big benefit. In some cases, we are able to get the entire case thrown out.

Defending you & your future can either be someone’s “job” or it can be their entire living, and defending people like you in San Diego is what we do every single day.

There is no limit on the amount of time and resources you can put into protecting yourself or the future of your loved ones. And when you hire an attorney to represent you, you are showing the court that you take yourself and your rights seriously and you are demanding to be treated with respect. We don’t just seek to settle your case and risk a possible detriment to your career or your future. We will use every defense strategy possible to get you or your loved one the best result, even if it means going to trial.

It’s your life, and your future…it’s really up to you how far you’re willing to go to protect that. When prison, fines, your record, and/or your career are on the line, now is the most crucial time to make the right decision.

Attorney Erik Friis


Our San Diego DUI defense attorney carries out highly effective defense strategies after a DUI arrest to protect the rights of his clients. If you have been arrested for a DUI offense, Superior Law Center will protect your rights

  • Is there a difference between a DMV case and a court case?

    Note also that sending an e-mail to our office does not create an attorney-client relationship, and none will be formed unless there is an expressed agreement between the firm and the client. Thus, we strongly advise against sending confidential or privileged information to us until you can establish such a relationship.

  • What if I have a commercial driver’s license?

    Additional penalties may be added to a DUI charge if you were driving a commercial vehicle. If you were driving a commercial vehicle at the time of your arrest, you may be facing Vehicle Code Section 23152(d), which could result in a suspension of your commercial driver’s license for a period of one year to life. For many, the revocation of a commercial driver’s license can be financially devastating. If you have been charged with a DUI while driving a commercial vehicle, our San Diego DWI defense attorney will fight for your rights after your DUI arrest.

  • What happens if I injure somebody?

    If you have been arrested for a DUI involving injury of another person, you can be charged with Vehicle Code Section 23153(a) or (b). This charge can either be a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the extent of the injuries involved. The punishment for injuring somebody while driving under the influence is more severe than the punishment for driving under the influence without injury.

  • What if I was under the age of 21 at the time of my DUI?

    If you are under the age of 21, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .05 percent or higher. This differs from the .01 percent required for a person under the age of 21 to potentially have their license suspended through a DMV hearing, and is significantly lower than the .08 percent BAC level established for those over the age of 21. Individuals under 21 years of age are charged with being in violation of Vehicle Code Section 23140, which can carry a year-long driver’s license suspension if unsuccessful at the DMV hearing. If you are under the age of 21, our experienced San Diego attorney can help if a DUI arrest has put you in the position of potentially losing your driving privileges. Superior Law Center will provide solid legal representation in DMV hearings and will defend your rights in court.

  • What if I had a passenger under the age of 14 in my car?

    If you are accused of a DUI while driving with a passenger under the age of 14, you may be facing additional penalties. Violation of Vehicle Code Section 23572 can be added to other DUI charges. In addition, those who are accused of driving under the influence with a passenger under the age of 14 may face either misdemeanor or felony child endangerment charges under Penal Code Section 273(a), the consequences of which can be quite severe.

  • What if I refused a chemical test?

    In San Diego and across California, a DUI arrest means you must, by law, submit to a blood, breath or, less commonly, urine test. This law does not apply to field sobriety testing prior to your arrest — which may lawfully be refused — but instead to testing at a police station, jail or hospital after your arrest. If you have refused a chemical test, this unfortunately can result in a “refusal enhancement,” which increases DUI penalties. Our San Diego DWI defense attorney, however, can many times fight a refusal enhancement on the grounds that you were either not lawfully arrested for DUI, you were not under the influence at the time of your arrest, or the arresting officer failed to properly inform you of the consequences of refusing a chemical test.
